I remember asking one of my relatives if they would stop using it and he told me that he had been called it enough times and will use it any time he damn well pleases. Yt people don't want us to stop using it for some positive reason, not so that we can evolve or whatever bs spin that they put on it. A large part of its power is because it was exclusive for them to use against us. Now that we use it there is this movement to stop its use. Notice how one of the most common retorts is something about how if we can use it then they can use it. They just want control and rights to it. Not equality, not evolution.

And for Black people to buy into sharing the blame for their discrimination against us? Whatever. They think what they want to think about us no matter what we say, how we act, how we dress, what we eat etc. Us being alive in any capacity above being subservient is enough. We were how many thousands of miles away minding our own business? They started this sh*t all over the world. The sooner we realize this the better.

IA Jolie.

I cringe when I hear a black person say something to the tune of " now they are gonna think we all act like that" or " she is making us look bad" .
Look bad to who?
Stop paying these white folk mind.
They will think what they want to think

White people have always taken liberties with African American culture. A large part of African American culture is dictated/defined by white people

If we do it should be because we want to. Not because we were told not to.

And you're right, it probably won't happen.

Dick Gregory talked about Foxx and his wife riding off into the sunset at the end of the movie. All I could think about after I saw that was how screwed they were gonna be when the klan go to them.

i thought "how in the world are these nig.gas gonna leave mississippi?"

I do...I cant lie...it will never been a positive term for me... ever. Id be offended if it was said to me by anyone but thats just me.  I hate hearing it on campus and I especially hate when parents refer to their child as such.
